3-arch concept

THE FAST SOLUTION

You can cover all sports with four models with three different constructions for the various foot types. Follow the simple foot type analysis steps and select an insole of the four models in LOW, MID or HIGH Arch. Insert the insole into footwear and you’re finished! Individual fitting can be offered as an extra service that ensures customers get a fit that is 100 % perfect. The wide range of insoles guarantees the right insole for every foot type.

LOW ARCH

The arch is incapable of cushioning, thus reducing the spring in the wearer’s step or running motion. Displacement of the bones involved (e.g., buckling of the ankle bone, heel bone) can cause strain on tendons and ligaments. This leads to static imbalance. The BD LOW Arch footbed helps to prevent overpronation.

MID ARCH

The layout of the bones, tendons and ligaments reflects the theoretical norm. The pressure below the foot is distributed over the 3 main support points: heel (20 %), big toe base joint (17 %), small toe base joint (13 %). A BD MID Arch footbed offers optimum pressure distribution for this type of foot, while stabilizing and cushioning at the same time.

HIGH ARCH

The long-arch is too high, thus reducing the contact surface. High medial and lateral arches are typically caused by shortening of the tendon structure or high muscle tension. These changes of the foot shape cause friction and pressure points when wearing shoes. A stressed tendon structure is often found throughout the body in this case. A BD HIGH Arch footbed ensures comfortable, even pressure distribution for this foot type.
